Design Fringe

4 September > 21 November 2021

Opening Friday 3 September 2021, from 6pm.






This year, the Melbourne Fringe Festival will launch Design Fringe, a program that evolves the 34-year history of Fringe Furniture to create a stunning new design exhibition and events program to reach design loving audiences across Melbourne. We are thrilled to be hosting the first Design Fringe exhibition, which will be on display across all of our gallery spaces.

Be bold

Design Fringe will include a broad range of design objects across multiple disciplines including household objects, ceramics, sculpture, architecture, technology, fashion and textiles. All designers in this year’s exhibition will respond to the theme of Home. A newly commissioned design work by a mid-career First Nations artist, designer or collective will provide an exciting focal point for the exhibition.
